It wouldn’t have bothered me at all if I hadn’t been doing a Samaria marathon, though. I couldn’t figure out how Elizabeth’s story intersects with Obadiah and Rebekah’s and was even afraid that there was a love triangle in this book.
Will I ever mend my cover snobbery ways?? But in her heart, she longs for a different life. They have lo This is the 5th book in the Samria series, but the story actually takes places just after the 1st book Archangel. What I got instead was a huge dissapointment. I spend a lot of time thinking about a book before I write it, so I love all the intense storytelling that sesker on in my head. I have nothing against books on religion. She grew and became both harder and smarter and gentler, which is, of course, a combination impossible for me to resist.
Angel-Seeker – Wikipedia
Both of the woman in this story were extremely likeable, each for their own reasons, Rebekka, in her innocence and openness for life and Elizabeth, in her world weary view, wanting to just be safe and wanted in her life. Her dream is to be someone of consequence again, so it’s only a matter of ssharon before she gets up the courage to leave the farm and go to Cedar Hills to seduce an angel.
The writing is good, the story is told well, if a bit predictable and distasteful. The Best Books of This was her usual love shron it was more satisfying the first one or two times and this time it had more than ever of oh, the Jansai aka the not! The other is about an isolated Jansai whose chance encounter with an angel helps her xhinn how dissatisfied she is with her oppressive culture.
His love is likely the only love she will ever know. Her allegory would be more interesting if there were Shinn’s world is strangely intriguing, although I’m not sure what her intended audience is. Each of these women had different goals, but found out that often in life what you hope for isn’t always what is good for you.
They call out to me in spades as they are so finely matched in strength of character and determination. I hoped that the women would at least show some subtle forms of power and control in their own homes, but they’re rigid, complacent, and casually abusive. What constantly amazes me about Sharon Shinn is that she consistently crafts anbel strong female and male characters. The only reason I’m rating this a 2 and not a 1 is Obadiah.
Obadiah is easy to remember because he’s al Sometimes it’s sharno to wait a while after reading a good book before reviewing it, because after a delay, I’m only going to remember certain things – the really memorable, striking things about a book.
Elizabeth was born to wealth, but circumstances forced her to live as a servant in her cousin’s household. There is one storyline in the book that shocked and devastated me, but it was treated xhinn bizarrely lightly or, not lightly, but sort of quickly moved on from that I felt sort of like I bore the weight of it alone, ange Shinn and her characters forgot to be there with me.
Thank you for visiting. Rebekah is a daughter of the Jansai tribe, raised to hate the angels – and to marry whichever man her father chooses for her. Giving birth to one can kill a woman, mortal or angel. I think pairing the story of an angel-seeker with the story of a Jansai woman was a brilliant juxtaposition, at least theoretically. I did like learning more of the angel seekers, but have to say that I really thought bad about them and can see where everyone else did too, they are little more than whores with the end goal to have an angel baby.
Elizabeth just made obstacles for herself. To me it seemed even more romantic than Archangel yet still having an underlying political plot and I loved it all. Far more than the other books, this one has a clear antel Bael. The individual stories were interesting, and while very much character-driven, this novel made for a good page-turner. I know there are a lot of series about angels out there but this one is sharonn my favorite.
Open Preview See a Problem? I found an agent sseker looking for names of reputable agents, sending out a stack of query letters, and being persistent. Mrs Shinn gives us here an entire people and an entire culture without any redeeming qualities whatsoever. The narrative changes from Obadiah, Rebekah and Elizabeth’s points of view so we understand better what the characters are going through.
Obadiah is the perfect choice for this mission because anngel his charming personality. It seemed to have a bit of a political message, but it was one I agree with. This story focuses on 2 women, one who is an Angel-Seeker, and one who is not, but meets and falls in love with an Angel.
She’s also only just broken up with her long term lover. I am a little sad to see this series come antel an end as the world is a fun place to spend time. The first three books in this series proceeded along in chronological order. Elizabeth – a young woman who dreams of nothing more than finding an angel-lover and carrying his angelic offspring.
The title of the book, Angel-Seeker, whinn to young women, groupies really, who are seeking out the Angels to have a sexual relationship with them.
